But hey, organizing is not interesting to look at. So instead, we will look at yarn.
I got this one in a trade. For some reason I had four teal Buggas with slight variations. Now I have two, plus this Tachina Fly and a Wollmeise Letzte Versuch that hasn't come yet. I hope that Wollmeise isn't my first bad trade. Will Das Letzte Versuch come at all? Eventually?
Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Tachina Fly
I got this one the normal way. Check out Gryphon's new, improved website and read the poetry that goes with each Sappho yarn.

I also got three Wollmeises last week, two from a friend who bought extra and sold some to me, and one in a trade (I had two similar greens).
From top: Skandal um Rosi (named after a song); Limone; Vroni
After arriving on Thursday from Germany, Rosi quickly surged to the head of the pack.
Some skeins of Skandal have more pink in them. For comparison, take a look at Dani's Skandal um Rosi* and her finished socks.
*You will need to scroll down to find the skein. But it is totally worth it to see all the piccies. This is the Wollmeise booth at a recent market in Germany. Marjan/Yarnissima is running the booth (shown in pink shirt and ponytail).
I think that might be my favorite blog post of all time.
